Padres | Chase Headley won't negotiate during season

San Diego Padres 3B Chase Headley's agent, Jim Murray, said his client won't negotiate a long-term contract extension with the team during the season. The Padres have made it known that they intend to make Headley the highest-paid player in team history, but an impasse could lead the Padres to attempt to trade Headley, who is eligible for free agency after the 2014 season. "I don't want to get involved in saying exactly what it would take," Headley said. "We don't have anything set in stone. We're not trying to set a record. I'm looking to something that is fair to myself and the Padres."

Fantasy Tip: If the Padres don't coax Headley into a deal before the July 31 trade deadline, expect San Diego to at least dangle Headley to see what they could receive for him. They have the luxury of being able to move Jedd Gyorko to third base if need be.
